Based on the idea that the most interesting part of an animation is always the transition from a to b, Letters Are My Friends are dedicating their latest research on this topic:
to push the limits of a readable animated glyph.
Therefore Ingo Italic and Bärbel Bold came up with an interactive version of the "Buchstabengewitter" patch - a generative typography kit using the toolkit vvvv. This dynamic framework transforms three-dimensional linear structures into all the letters of the alphabet, fluidly morphing from one to another. So, each letter is animated. Each letter can be morphed into any glyph of the alphabet by interactively choosing them. As an extension of the original patch, you could also change the pivot.
The project was part of UpperCase & Lower Space - a night with parametric typography at Letters Are My Friends on 19th may 2012.
